I find that if I cane it the heat can make the oil break down and am worried.

I know there are many factors that contribute to the oil breaking down and losing its durability but how often should I change it?

For instance if I cook fish fingers then there are lots of particles left over that foul the oil and ruin my chips.

If I use it for just chips its ok for at least 3 months but if I use it for trackday chicken burgers and sausages it smokes alot.

I never realised it would take so much maintenence and am seriously considering selling it and buying a steamer.

What do you think?

I change mine every 3K.

Middlehurst recommend 6K, but you got to bear in mind that is for a standard car.

Firstly, always use a good quality oil, changed regularly:

Some people choose to use expensive imported brands - http://www.rasna.com/rs/ , but whatever you choose, regularly change your filter:

If you can't stand the maintenance, perhaps you should consider change to a machine that demands less upkeep: http://www.q-n-c.com/
